Summary0005585: Suggestion: Add note to list entries
DescriptionWhile the related issue addresses the ignore list only, I like adding notes to entries of the additional folders list and the excuded folders list too. Sometimes, an additional folder may be self-explanatory as its path name may include a hint for the reason. But there are other cases where an entry summarizes various previous entries and then a note for the former entries and their reasons may be a good reminder.

Then there are reasons which implement a work around for still known limitations of SUMo. A note may then provide a hint when to update or remove that entry of the additional or excluded folder list after SUMo itself gets the desired update for which these entries provided a work around.

This shows too, that there are reasons with impact on additional and excluded folder list simultanously. While adding such dependency links between the two lists may sound conveniant in addition, I fear it troublesome and complicating maintenance unnecessarily. Such notes are a softer form of linking and reminding without such a complexity risk and have a wider scope.
Steps To Reproducen/a
Additional InformationDoes the order of entries in additional folder list and excluded folder list have any semantic meaning?

If not, then please store them not in order of adding to the list but instead in the alphabetic order of file path.
